Rebekah and Freya Mikaelson are two of the most dedicated, loving, and all about their niece, Aunties in the world. Granted it is a fictional world, but hey, still, theirs is a story that is told. And we’re accepting the dedication that they have towards Hope as Auntie training.
We know, we know – to some of you this is gonna sound like we’re off our meds – which if we’re being honest – I haven’t taken yet today. Instead, I was thinking about Rebekah Mikaelson showing up on Legacies and what that is going to mean for Hope.
Granted, personally, I haven’t had a chance to watch any of this season, but that’s okay. Gives me more room to speculate on if this is going to be hot mess express or the best thing that has happened to this show.
If you are like us, we’ve been die hards since the days of The Vampire Diaries. The show was a defining point in fandom and one that taught so many people about what it means to ship. But if we’re being honest, also looking back on The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, the meaning of family and “always and forever” were ingrained in us.
And no one (besides Elijah) has ever understood the meaning of family like Rebekah. She took Hope in as her own to protect her. She raised her for a period of time. She and her siblings gave up so much for Hope, which is a big huge weight for Hope to carry.
So Auntie Bek’s showing up on Legacies makes us wonder just how bad things will get for Hope.
That’s right, Claire Holt is heading back to TV for the November 11th episode of Legacies, reprising her role as Rebekah Mikaelson. In the episode, ““Hope is tracked down by the one person who could help her — Rebekah Mikaelson. Rebekah is fearful of what path Hope has chosen but makes every effort to get through to her. Josie and Lizzie hold out hope in a seemingly dire situation as MG figures out what he can do to help. Meanwhile, Kaleb wants to set things right and turns to Cleo for guidance.”
And if there is anyone that get reach Hope, it’s definitely Auntie Bek’s or Auntie Freya. I can’t help what “auntisms” that she will use to get through to Hope.
As an Aunt, I frequently use understanding and guilt to make my nieces and nephews to see that they are being dumbfucks or that they aren’t seeing the entire picture. So what do I think that Rebekah could use to get through to Hope?
YOUR FATHER DIDN’T GIVE UP HIS LIFE FOR YOU TO NOT LIVE A LIFE OF HAPPINESS AND LOVE
Guilt, it’s the foundation of a lot of things in life. Don’t make me feel bad for saying it, because you know that shit is true. Guilt makes the world go round – kinda. So if Hope isn’t going to listen to Auntie Beks, she’s gotta pull what is the right of every Aunt in the world – cold harsh guilt.
Now I am not saying that this is right, but what else is going to get Hope on the straight and narrow if reason won’t work. Like seriously, asking here.
THERE IS AND NEVER WILL BE ANYONE LIKE YOU
Look, it’s not a lie. It just may not be what Hope wants to hear. It’s a phrase that is all a matter of how you take it. You can see the good in the phrase or the bad. But here’s hoping she sees the good?
Hope is meant to be in Mystic Falls. She’s meant to be saving the world, she’s meant to be going through all the ups and downs of life. It sucks, sure. And it’s going to feel a little more dramatic because she’s a teenager. But Hope is special. She’s always been special.
And there truly will never be anyone like her.
YOUR MOTHER AND FATHER ARE HERE WITH YOU
Hope seems to think that she needs to pick up the fight that her parents couldn’t finish. I could be wrong, but that’s the way I’ve felt through the past four seasons. Granted, she can’t outrun her destiny, but I am pretty sure that she can hide. We’re all good at that. But Hope doesn’t want to spend a life hiding and we can also respect that.
Rebekah would tell her that she is the last of the Mikaelson’s and that even when she feels alone, she isn’t alone. Her Mom and Dad are there for her. She would tell Hope that just because they aren’t there physically doesn’t mean that they aren’t there.
ALWAYS AND FOREVER ISN’T JUST A SAYING
I didn’t always. believe in “always and forever” but it’s funny how a television show can teach you that there is true meaning in words that you may think are just a phrase. The Mikaelson’s are always there for each other, no matter what. Always and Forever, it’s not just a saying. It’s the truest way of life.
What advice do you think that Rebekah would give Hope? Will Hope listen?
